Musical Monday: Jars of Clay
This song, "Silence" by Jars of Clay, came up on my iTunes shuffle the other day. I know I've heard it before since I've listened to the album the whole way through, but I can't say I remembered it. I really like it. It's haunting and it's searing; it is made even more powerful by the fact that the question, presumabley asked of God, is never answered: "Where are you?" And in that, I am reminded of one Friday morning when a holy man lay dying, and asked our God, His Father, "Why have you forsaken me?"
